Telehealth/eHealth, another aspect of PEP will use telecommunications and virtual technology to deliver healthcare sans the traditional setup. This also includes virtual home healthcare to aid chronically ill patients with guidance on certain procedures from providers. Healthcare providers can use mobile health technology to access clinical information, communicate with patients, and offer real-time solutions. Patients can also utilize mHealth to access their clinical data through mobile-enabled patient portals and communicate with care givers.


The amazing power of synthetic data to drive AI innovation
Jayachandran Kizhakootramachandran - Associate Vice President | October 21, 2019

Digitization, Internet of things, connected humans, connected machines, and connected world are all generating large volumes of data at an unprecedented scale. IDC predicts that by 2025, there will be 175 zettabytes of data and continue growing at an exponential scale. These trends would give an impression that data is available at an unbelievable scale at everyone’s disposal. It’s not exactly so. Many artificial intelligence (AI) projects and innovations get stalled due to non-availability of data or because the data collection process is too cumbersome and time consuming. Believe it or not but great ideas get nipped in the bud due to data scarcity!

Digital healthcare enterprises today leverage data, are experience centric and outcome driven, and are keen on innovating. However, the key element that will determine the future of healthcare is consumer empowerment. RPM is a classic example of how the aspects of care have moved closer to consumers, thanks to technological advancements and accompanying regulations and incentive structures. Laws and regulatory bodies have also started propagating the mainstream adoption of care models enabled by RPM. As RPM brings health and care to consumers, innovation in technology is getting a boost as well, and this is just the beginning of true “self-service healthcare”!
